Weeden or Newton? WHIR

Postby donkquixote » Tue Oct 23, 2012 12:38 pm

Who to start this week? Cam has the QB death matchup (@CHI). Weeden is home against the Chargers. Other potential factors are Richardson's injury (Browns may pass more than they would) and our league is 6 pts for all touchdowns (which means Cam gets no "bonus" for the occasional rushing TD).

I might have this problem. I say might because Weeden is one of the guys I can get from waivers, if I wanted.

I'd be tempted to start Weeden. I don't think Newton is great, especially not one to put up big fantasy pts vs Bears.

Not that Weeden is a stellar option here, but CHI just looks for real. There D is shutting people down and Carolina's offense hasn't exactly been clicking. I'd roll the dice with Weeden in this case.

I normally wouldnt say this....i advocate always starting your studs, but Cam has taken a stepbackwards, and with the re-org going on in Carolina now that the GM has been canned, i feel they are going to continue to spiral....my gut says, at least for this week start the 29 year old rookie! 1vote for Weeden!


help?

Literally same problem. I think I'm going with Weeden, as well as on a rampage. For your reading pleasure, or disgust: viewtopic.php?t=527220

If it's 6pts for all TD's, I'd pick Weeden. Richardson's hurt and Weeden LOVES the deep ball especially with Josh Gordon coming into his own. Panthers offense has been a shambles all season long.
